The Glen Waverley Uniting Church is governed by the Regulations of the Uniting Church In Australia.
The congregation has a primary voice in decision-making, and several congregational meetings are held each year.
Church Council is responsible for spiritual leadership and administration on behalf of the congregation. It is an elected body which also includes members of the ministry team.
Church Council Committees
There are various Church Council committees that look after aspects of congregational life, and report to Council. Four missional groups are charged with the advancement of the spiritual and missional life of the church.
These four mission groups are:
- Community Hub – focusing on building relationships between people in our congregation and the local community
- Inclusive Community – focusing on providing fellowship and support for all groups within this church community so that people feel and know that they are included.
- Community Outreach – focusing on sharing our friendship and resources with those in need in our local community, nationally, and internationally; and
- Community of Faith – focusing on developing, expressing and living out our Christian faith.
Other council committees assist on matters concerning finance, property, communications and staffing.
